I will support my officers if the number of stop and searches rises in the fight against knife crime and street violence. I believe the vast majority of the public will too.feedback

Cressida Dick quotes

Jun 20 2017

We need the resources to do the job. We're stretched and I'm talking with the mayor and the government about the resources we need. We undoubtedly need a very capable police service in the future for all the reasons people can see.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - London

London has woken up to the news of another appalling attack on our city. My thoughts are with the family of the man who has died and with all those who were injured.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - London

London is a city of many faiths and many nationalities. An attack on one community is an attack on all of us. Terrorists will not succeed in their attempts to divide us and make us live in fear.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - London

Extra officers are on duty in the area to help reassure the local community. They will be there for as long as they are needed. Communities will see additional officers patrolling across the city and at Muslim places of worship.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Extremism

This was quite clearly an attack on Muslims who looked like they were probably Muslims and they were coming from a prayer meeting. We treat this as a terrorist attack and we in the Met are as shocked as anybody in this local community or across the country at what has happened.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Keith acted that day with no thought for his own safety, intent simply on doing his job and protecting members of the public and Parliament.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - London

London is a safe city and we will do everything we can in our power to keep you safe. We won't let them win and London will carry on. We are highly effective at preventing attacks in this country and we will step up a gear and do our level best to stop any further attacks. But as you point out, highly volatile people who are intent on doing something absolutely terrible and who are quite happy - maybe even pleased - to kill themselves and to use a low tech methods - these are difficult things to defend against.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - London

But obviously we will be reviewing, for example the number of armed officers we have and how they work, and a whole host of other things that is likely, from my point of view, to take more resources and I will be asking for them.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - London

He had finished a day's work and was having a drink with friends and he witnessed the attack. My understanding is that, without hesitation, wearing his normal clothes, he dived in and tried to assist, and he I'm afraid was himself severely injured, but utterly heroic.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Women

You wouldn't expect me to comment on that sort of thing right now as we are in purdah and are about to have the election. We would always want more resources.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

This has been a truly ghastly few weeks.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Scottish independence

We in this country have faced a terrorist threat throughout my life - it changed and morphed and we will change and adapt to what appears to be a new reality for us. We do have extensive powers, we need to look at whether we are using them to the full extent. We will be working with whoever is in Government to see whether further powers would assist. Every leader is going to ask for more powers, of course they are. We need to look at our strategy, we need to look at our resourcing.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Terrorism

We do have a very, very powerful counter-terrorism effort, but as I have indicated, the threat does seem to be changing, so we need to look at our strategy, we need to look at our resourcing, we need to look at the techniques we're using.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Scottish independence

We will always be looking to see if anything has been directed from overseas, but I would say the majority of the threat that we are facing at the moment does not appear to be directed from overseas.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Scottish independence

I don't think the public in this country want to live in a place where we are all armed to the teeth, and on every street corner there is someone with a high-powered weapon.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Scottish independence

We get lots of information, more than we ever have. We have people standing up and condemning these attacks. We need more in the future.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Scottish independence

We have always been able to step up our game. That is what we need to do now. As do people in our communities.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Women

Last night saw another appalling and tragic incident in London, something we hoped we would not see again.feedback

May 24 2017 - London

We are working closely with event organisers. We will be risk assessing every event. We want London to stay open for business. London is open for business. It's our job to keep people as safe as we possibly can.feedback

May 24 2017

I myself yesterday went to see the security at the Chelsea Flower Show to see how that was working.feedback

May 24 2017

We hope there will be minimal disruption, but we need to plan ahead over the next days and – I hope not – but potentially further than that.feedback

May 24 2017

We are thinking right out into weeks about how we can keep as many events as possible with the event organisers running as usual but having paid really good attention to the necessary security.feedback

May 24 2017 - London

So since the attack in Manchester, colleagues around the country and in London have been reviewing with event organisers the security around all events.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - London

If in the fight against knife crime, the numbers of stops and searches go up, then I will be supporting them in that as well. The Met has taken £600 million out over the last few years. That is a lot of money. If there are services we have to cut back on, I will be upfront about that and I will explain why. The public would not for example expect us to investigate a break-in at a shed in the garden in the same way as we investigate a murder. We put hugely different resources in.feedback

Apr 18 2017

But it could be as effective if not more effective, through the use of technology and different ways of working.feedback

Apr 18 2017

The root problems behind why people might be carrying knives go way beyond the police service. I think this will be one of the themes of my commissionership. I won't have the police service as the place where all of society's ills are laid out and blamed on us.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I would like to see data and the digital world [be] more of an advantage to us than it is to the criminal, and I'm not sure that's entirely true [at present].feedback

Apr 18 2017

They are the person who is called to account for the operations of their force constitutionally and legally … I want to be open-minded but I can absolutely see why many colleagues may not think this is a wise thing.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I am a very happy person, I have a lovely life, very privileged.feedback

Apr 18 2017

It is very hard to say that if Keith had been armed he would be alive today ... There's a backdrop of loads of members of the public where he was standing, so even if he had had a firearm it might have been difficult for him to take a shot.feedback

Apr 18 2017

The figures worry me. I want to bear down across the wide spectrum of violent crime. If it is the case that gun crime and knife crime are going up, that is of huge concern to me and it will mark out my commissionership trying to bear down on violence in general and those two crimes in particular. I think it is an extremely important tactic and an extremely important tool properly used. When the officers are acting lawfully, courteously and are held to account, I will absolutely support them.feedback

Apr 18 2017

None of them will keep me awake at night. I won't be a very good commissioners if I am tossing and turning at night.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - London

Where there are no investigative opportunities after our first contact with the public, I think the public would actually prefer us to get on with dealing with something where we can have a criminal justice outcome. I am not saying officers won't attend (a burglary). I am not saying that we won't assess it. Of course we will. We will take a first report and we will look at what we have got and we will try to support the victim in whatever way we can. But we are not going to go in for meaningless activity.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Terrorism

Terrorism is just one of the challenges we face. Alongside the Mayor and every single one of our officers and staff, I will work tirelessly to keep our city safe.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Terrorism

It is a great honour and privilege for me to be taking up this role. I am looking forward to leading what I believe to be the world's best police service. The Met's response to the terrible events in Westminster demonstrated it is highly professional and effective. I am grateful to my predecessor and his team for the planning that went into building such a response and also to Craig Mackey and Mark Rowley for the way in which they have demonstrated such capable and compassionate leadership.feedback

Feb 23 2017

I could not be more pleased to be appointed as the commissioner. It's beyond my wildest dreams, an extraordinary privilege. I am very humbled.feedback
